A Firestaff is a tool that was used by mask and tool makers from Ta-Metru as well as Tahnok Va. The heads of the staffs could reach extremely high temperatures, allowing Ta-Matoran to soften, weld, and shape protodermis into masks and other items.[2] In addition to creating intense heat, Firestaffs can also give off intense bursts of light that can temporarily stun certain Rahi.[1] Tahnok Va use Firestaffs to see their way through dark areas and to defend themselves.[3]

Vakama's Firestaff

While still a Matoran, Vakama used a Firestaff to make masks. He kept it after he became a Toa, and later used it to create the Kanohi Vahi during his adventures as a Toa Metru.[4] After becoming a Turaga, Vakama continued to use his Firestaff as his Badge of Office and a walking stick.[5] During the Great War, the Firestaff was lost while Vakama was fighting Rahi, but was recovered by Takua in Onu-Koro and returned to Vakama.[1]

Lhikan's Firestaff

Turaga Lhikan's ornate Firestaff

Example Usage

Vakama used his Firestaff to create the Kanohi Vahi in Legends of Metru Nui.
